Feinstein Calls Out Peter King’s Islamophobia And ‘Hatred’ For Muslims

Source: RAWSTORY

Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) on Sunday lashed out at New York Rep. Peter King (R) for creating “disdain and hatred” for Muslims following last week’s bombing in Boston.

Fox News host Chris Wallace asked King in a Sunday interview if he agreed that “political correctness be damned, we have to do more effective surveillance inside the Muslim community.”

“The threat is coming from within the Muslim community within these cases in New York,” King asserted. “They are getting people in our country, who are under the radar screen, who have clean records. We saw it in the Times Square bomber, the subway bomber in New York. And now we’ve seen it — it appears — in Massachusetts.”

“And 99 percent of the Muslims are outstanding Americans. The fact is, that’s where the threat is coming from,” he added. “If you know where the threat is coming from a certain community, that’s where you have to look.”

2. But yet he slams his own country

But yet he slams his own government when they came out with the Homeland Security report that we need to pay close attention to white males with prior military experience.

3. rawstory should have put Islamophobia in quotes

not "hatred". She never used that word. She did say hatred however... if we can believe their "report". They watch a tv show, then "report" what was said.

As far as the topic of the post goes, Diane is right. King is a creep.

5. Memo to the Republicans...

How dare you guys slam people who worked so hard in intelligence communities that prevent a lot of potential attacks on American soil. How dare you guys lied and twist the reality to self-promote the political image than using the common sense to hush until gathering the facts before saying anything that would make everything worse in Americans' relations with the Muslim community.

Republicans, you do not speak for the voice of people who disagree with you and the Muslims are well aware that there are plenty of Americans would appreciate them and welcome them. The far-right in America has truly lost their principle (the exactly same reason why Roman Empire collapsed) and most of Americans need to simply fight back against the fear-mongers of the far-right like Glenn Beck, Ted Cruz, Jim Inhofe, Lindsey Graham, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Lou Gohmert, and plenty of more idiots in the Republicans.

I have no loyal to people with the far-right extreme views in America, period.

9. One thing they all have in common

Almost all the people who have committed these type of crimes do have something in common:

They are young males between 15 and 30.

Obviously Mr. King must think that we need to watch these people closer

Frat boys especially
